Separating religion from state is a conspiracy: TLP chief


KARACHI: Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi said on Tuesday that separating religion from state is a conspiracy.

Addressing a meet-the-press programme at Karachi Press Club (KPC), Rizvi said that his party has nothing to do with any deal and would not carry out seat adjustment with any political party. He added that some politicians reached out to him seeking a compromise but he refused to do so.

The TLP chief said that the PML-N had a problem with former president Pervez Musharraf because he dismissed its government on charges of corruption.

He went on to say that he had staged a sit-in at Faizabad for the protection of Khatm-e-Nabuwat and got success after getting a resignation from the minister who made changes in the Khatm-e-Nabuwat clause. He also said that when he had staged a sit-in, they had faced many teargas shells but did not compromise on principles.

Later, KPC president and its governing body members presented flowers and ajrak to Rizvi.
